They are Baby Boomers, the youngest have recently turned 50, the oldest have been creating art for more than 50 years. The artists, from 11 countries, were asked to submit work that is reflective; work that tells us where they’ve come from or where they hope to go; work that illustrates influences, roads not taken or thoughts of legacy and the like. Some have looked back while others reflect on where the journey has brought them, like Lewis Knauss, who says, “I am happier with chaos, the way I need to give up a bit more control of the outcome, flaws and in nature, the beauty of disaster.”

Green From the Get Go: International Contemporary Basketmakers & Organic Portraits: John F. Cooper


Green From the Get Go: International Contemporary Basketmakers & Organic Portraits: John F. Cooper, Sustainability is part of the design and craft process, which requires a heightened sensitivity to materials, one which honors the caring for, replenishing, and repurposing of materials. Some of these sculptural baskets are made from both flora and fauna, from bamboo, pine, sea grass, and willow to emu feathers and porcupine needles. Each maker brings their own conceptual approach and expression to their design and fabrication process. Some works are small enough to nestle in the hand or rest table-top, while others are monumental or hang on the wall.
